"Carrie Waller - Painting Glass"
July 28-29, 2017
 

Carrie Waller almost needs no introduction! She’s won many awards for her bold, dramatic and vibrant paintings, many of which are based on lights, shadows and colors seen through glass. She is widely known for her award-winning paintings of incandescent light bulbs, an idea that struck a chord with her when they were banned from further production. Carrie’s been living in Japan with her military family for the past two years, but she’s coming back to the States for a family visit (and our workshop) in 2017. Carrie is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Louisiana Watercolor Society, and the Mid-Southern Watercolorists, and an associate member of the National Watercolor Society.

"Plein Air Painting at Edisto Island, SC"
September 29 - October 2, 2017
 

Shanna will work with a small group of 7-9 painters of any level who would like to learn her approach to plein air painting. Shanna will show us how to begin a painting and work it through to completion using value and color temperature to create a sense of distance and convey the story that needs to be told. Because we will be a small group, Shanna will tailor her instruction to the needs of individual participants. There will be some classroom time, but most of the retreat will be spent outdoors painting. Participants should have some knowledge of materials. More information is available from Edisto Art Retreats.
 
Location: Edisto Island, South Carolina
Instructor: Shanna Kunz
Cost: $550: Includes instruction and lunch

A great drawing is the foundation of a great painting. Charles Reid, the master of contour drawing, will teach you how to concentrate on interconnecting shapes rather than drawing separate objects. Discover how to simplify and avoid overworking by focusing on good paint consistency. Practice “direct painting”, using as few over-washes as possible. Achieve the correct color, edge variety, and tonal value on the first try.
